Like another poster here, I'm 6'3" and weight about 160 - 165 pounds. My main concern is the side effects of eating enough calories (4000 calories a day). I'm not a doctor, but my impression is that metabolic processes are one of the main things that causes the body to age. I don't suggest starvation (like the crazy dude who fasted for three weeks) as a means to live longer, but it just seems like a leaner body and smaller meals would help a person age more gracefully, rather than continuously eating. Does anyone know or care about this? Anyway, assuming I don't worry about the above, there's the other issue of constantly being full or having stomach discomfort. Has anyone else who has bulked up felt an initial discomfort from eating so much? Did it go away? Also, a few years ago I started trying to bulk up and around the same time I discovered many lipoma on my torso. One was removed and was benign. I've read things online about correlation between lipoma and high testosterone, etc, so my mind thinks that maybe the two things are related. However, it could be entirely coincidental. Then of course there's the increased cost of food...I already don't have time to cook my own meals. Of course like anything, I guess if you're serious and it's a high priority then there's a way. Thanks in advance for any comments.
